I get cheaper traffic from Content, rather than from the same sites I try to site target. Must be something to do with 'history'. This algo needs better integration between 'history' of content and a new site targetted campaign.
For me site targetted is currently a no go. I am trying and keeping a campaign 'active' waiting for some positive boost from the algo over time.

I appreciate everyone's input.
I opted out of content over a year ago because of poor quality traffic. It was always a battle to get make goods. I would pull web logs and wait a few weeks for a response.
At times, even the converting traffic in content was poor quality in relation to my products. I was hoping that I would receive similar performance through Google site targeting as I receive with other content text link networks.
I'll probably try the site targeting again in the New Year keeping my budget to a minimum.

Yea, I might try the site-targeting sometime soon as well. I, also, opted out of content a long time ago due to parked pages showing my ads and I felt they make me look like a spammer when they show on parked pages/MFA sites. This way, if I target sites they won't be able to show on those crap pages. NOW, if Adwords allowed me to opt out of parked pages, then I would try content sites again to see...
